My 16 month old has had a bad cold and cough for the last few days. We've tried vapour on her feet with socks, Calpol Plug In, vapour on her bib, elevating the cot, and cough medicine. We're keeping her hydrated with water which can be a task in itself! Nothing seems to be shifting it. I gave her a Covid test which was negative. Is there anything else I can try?

Sorry to hear your little one is suffering from a cold, I hope she's starting to feel better. You're doing all the right things- sadly it can just take a week or so for them to shift the cold. I used to elevate the cot, keep them hydrated, and offer lots of cuddles. I also used a saline spray called Snuffle which helped with any congestion.
